Convenient usability combined with artificial intelligence boosts operation efficiency

Cafe24’s AI-based Edibot Thumbnail tool generates online store thumbnail images instantly.

Global e-commerce platform Cafe24 launched its AI-based Edibot Thumbnail tool that generates online store thumbnail images instantly.

A thumbnail in an online store’s shopping page acts as a small preview image of the product being sold. It is the first image of a product that a shopper encounters, so it tends to influence the click and conversion rates. Hence, merchants consider thumbnail production to be important.

Previously, making thumbnails required professional graphic tools like Photoshop or Illustrator. Merchants also needed additional help from experts. Edibot Thumbnail enables merchants with no prior graphic tool knowledge to make thumbnail images quickly and easily all by themselves.

The service currently provides eight free templates and will gradually add more options in the future. It uses the Drag and Drop function and can even create thumbnails with moving images called GIFs (Graphics Interchange Format). Also, AI can automatically identify all available product colors from the uploaded photos and insert the color options at the bottom of the thumbnail. In other words, Edibot Thumbnail is an all-in-one tool that makes it easy to generate thumbnail images with just a couple of clicks.

To use Edibot Thumbnail, the merchant must first select a free template. Inserting a text or photo completes the thumbnail. They can go on to create a GIF file if they wish to show a series of moving images that show product colors and styling.

Considering how tens to a couple of hundred thumbnails are produced every day, Edibot Thumbnail will be able to improve operational efficiency significantly. It is free to use for all Cafe24 merchants.

Jaesuk Lee, CEO of Cafe24, said, “Cafe24 is launching new services that focus on boosting usability and convenience so that businesses can operate more smoothly.” He added, “Cafe24 aims to sophisticate our services to create an environment where anyone can easily start an e-commerce business.”
